Leaves..Watercolor..Texas Artist..Rae Andrews



 I love to challenge myself with design.

 This was 'test' painting in readiness for a workshop I did.

I don't like to pre-draw images for the most part, and instead let my paints run and fold into each other making interesting designs into which I can 'fit' a subject ...

I used Golden Liquid Acrylics with a small squirt bottle to start this one. If one leaves a lot of white and interesting negative shapes, they have a better chance of finding a subject and bring it into focus.

I worked with WATERCOLORS to get the leaf shape, and of course, NEGATIVE PAINTING.


                                              This is a 7" x 12.5" image (unframed)
                                                                  $150 plus S/H

A Wandering..Watercolor..Texas Artist..Rae Andrews



I just finished this one. It's of the river area near my home. I have done several plein air paintings of it.
This one however, I painted in the studio today, from my photograph.

 Green on green is beautiful in nature, but in a painting, it tends to be a bit much of the same thing for me. 

 I usually play with complimentary colors, such as the orange/red family and even some blue/mauve colors as small accents amongst the green.

I hope you like this one. For me, it was very meditative to paint.

This image measures 16" x 20" unframed

Journal Entry, Texas 2..Watercolor..Texas Artist..Rae Andrews



Just finished this journal entry.. a few years ago I was at the banks of the Pedernales River not far from where I live here in Texas. It’s a great spot to paint.

Lately we have had an enormous amount of rain and flooding, so this area is a good place to stay away from till the water subsides. 

I used an old photo for this journal entry.
 It’s in my Stillman and birn 8” x 10” Beta series journal.

Journal Entry, Texas..Watercolor..Texas Artist..Rae Andrews


I have done this scene before in pastels.

 I decided I would like to make it a journal entry as well, this time in watercolor. It’s a scene very dear to my heart, as I pass it almost daily when I walk my puppies. 

I did embellish the colors a little, Texas is not that showy with FALL COLORS, so I gave it some help. 😊

The journal is a Stillman Birn ( Beta Series) journal. 8” x 10” and I used both pages for this image.

I hope you enjoy these journal entries, more to come soon.
